What is vtk online?
vtk online is a free information platform on laboratory animal science topics. It was developed in the framework of the funding guidelines of Germany’s Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) on "Alternatives to animal experiments" and expanded through DFG funding.
During the implementation of EU Directive 2010/63/EU a new, modular learning and teaching concept was recommended (for information on this see under Modular training) and vtk online has been structured accordingly.
What las campus has to offer
People who work with laboratory animals need to be adequately trained and qualified and to undergo continuing education. For this, las campus offers various online training options. We also create modules to order and can compile modules for you for specific teaching and training purposes. Examples of what we have to offer are:
- online courses to acquire knowledge in accordance with Annex 1 Section 3 TierSchVersV (DE: People who perform or plan and design experiments);
-- Registration with LAS interactive is essentially free of charge --
Sound knowledge and skills in laboratory animal science and in animal experimental work are key to handling laboratory animals in a way that in in keeping with animal welfare and in the spirit of the 3Rs. This concerns all fields of research using animal experiments, whether field research, basic biological research, applied medical research or experiments for safety testing.
